Printmaking Studio Fire

A fire leveled the building that was home to this Takach tabletop etching press. The only thing left standing was the press workbench and all. The owner called Takach Press and asked that it be repaired. The Press was shipped to Albuquerque where it was completely overhauled. The picture is a before and after picture. Amazingly the before shot is on the left. The fire that leveled the building did little damage to the press. All press parts are the same on the right hand side except the brass tags one with the Takach logo and one with the serial number and date were the only things replaced.

Do you know how the fire happened?

That is pretty incredible. I didn't even know this was possible.

Is this for sale or just for our information? But I believe the press could come through a fire. I have a small tabletop Takach with which I am very happy (except I need a bigger one!)

This Press was delivered back to the owner after it was refurbished.
Thanks for the comment
